Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard


During negotiations with the Vice President of the United States Mike Pence, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko shown him a burnt Gospel. This was stated by Poroshenko’s press secretary Svyatoslav Tsegolko on February 19th on Facebook.

“During negotiations with the Vice President of the United States, Petro Poroshenko showed him a burnt Gospel found in the field of the battle with the Russian aggressors. The holy script that a Ukrainian soldier kept on his heart shortly before his death was found opened on the pages of the Gospel of Mark,” said Tsegolko, describing his information.

According to him, Ukraine learnt not to be afraid, having withstood the fight against “the aggressor who sows contention, fear, and despondency”, and that the world has to “cease to be afraid of this (aggressor) too”.

As a reminder, the people’s deputy Svetlana Zalishchuk brought to Munich shrapnel from a shell for the American senator John McCain. She wrote about this on Facebook on February 19th.

“I thanked senator John McCain for his tireless support of Ukraine. I brought to him piece of shrapnel from a high-explosive 125mm shell from a Russian T-90 tank, which in the morning of January 31st, 2017, landed on the square near the central regional hospital in Avdeevka,”stated the People’s Deputy.

According to Zalishchuk, the piece of shrapnel was given to her by the People’s Deputy Oksana Korchinskaya working in the area of the Avdeevka hospital when “300 meters from them the shells were exploding”.

“Russia aggressively imposes its interpretation of history. We must constantly demonstrate the facts to the the world,” said Zalishchuk.
